Seems the press have got a hold of this and we expect a few articles in the dailys and few interviews on radio / tv - its building momentum - as it should - I have never been involved with anything like this before and it still brings a tear to my eye - will start to post inside stories about landladies and appendix ops and things asap - this story needs to be told - Just Do It

Update 4/8/2009

Ian Cheeseman has a new radio show starting tonight 8pm I think called Blue Tuesday - Tony Griffiths the guy who started all this will be on talking about the appeal and Sierra Leone in general on tuesday sept 8th from 8-9pm

The appeal will be in the sept issue of the City Magazine

I have contacted the club with a view to help from them - they have shown a tentative interest so far so fingers crossed

We have also contacted various news outlets

The intention now if all goes to plan is to but the mini bus here get it liveried and six of us drive over to Sierra Leone on a fund raising trip and get as much publicity as we can for both MCFC and MCFC Sierra Leone
